    I have one in my A1200 unfortunately I don't have the board with me right now so I can't tell you what diode but the female header is soldered on and it just sits on the male floppy port/header.

    I guess any ordinary 0805 rectifier diode should do the job. There is almost no current involved and it's only 5 volts...

    I guess any 1N4148 will work, header should be 2x17 pins, 2.54mm grid

    Steve.. If it plugs onto the floppy floppy port/header on the motherboard or the drive. How do you connect the floppy ribbon cable..

    You don't, that's the whole point, it terminates the floopy port so there's no boot delay when using an Amiga without a floppy drive
